Welcome to the blog! I’m a small-town Florida girl and Army wife relocated to the Seattle Suburbs, documenting love from one coast to the other. I live for a good PNW mountain breeze, sweat pants, and local eats. Let's be friends!

Cle Elum Wedding | Swiftwater Cellars

Sam + Nick are SO much fun. From their Rattlesnake Ledge engagement session featuring their sweet curly pup and epic overcast views, to their wedding day parrrrrtttaaayyyy, I just adore these two! Cle Elum Weddings usually fall inside Suncadia area, this epic little mountain-side resort perfectly prepped for the best wedding days. Swiftwater Cellars is one of their venues. Think dreamy outdoor space coupled with dark and moody cellar vibes. Swiftwater combined with Sam’s elegant taste in decor made for quiet the day.

Their day started out a little drizzly and ended up with crazy sunny skies giving them a little bit of everything weather wise for their day. My favorite part of their day was personally the first look. I get the honor of observing (in a non-stalkerish way) people’s emotions unfold. Watching Nick’s face with anticipation of seeing his beautiful bride was so sweet and intimate. Then to see his face spread with joy upon her arrival – now that’s just priceless.

Sam and Nick, thank you for having me capture your BEAUTIFUL day (even 8 months pregnant!). I was so honored to be there.
